Config for 0.7 will be much more flexible in addition to allowing
system-wide configuration.  The page here explains at least the
_conceptual_ structure of how the configuration should work.  Some of
the implementation details are up in the air until we figure out how
they relate to/fit in with PolicyKit, which we're looking at now.

One note should be that 'dns-search' should probably be a string array
and not just a string item.  But once the details are figured out
there'll be a spec for these key/value pairs and their type.

Really, it's just an array of "connection" objects, each of which itself
is an array of dictionary objects that contains key/value pairs that
describe the settings.  It doesn't really matter how they are stored,
whether in GConf, KConfig, LDAP, text files, on a smartcard, or
whatever, as long as it can be spit back out in this pretty simple
format.
